Do YOU want to sell prints? One mistake you make.Hi people!
Today it is a short journal without photos, sorry.
I would like to give you one important advice, so I hope it can be still useful
I see many people try to sell prints here. And they are often sad they have not sold anything yet.
But at the same time I see they do the same mistake. So:
HOW PEOPLE TRY TO SELL THEIR WORK AS A PRINT?
1. you took a photo (drew a picture). It is nice, so you want to post it as a deviation.
2. you edit it. Making it sharper, more colourful, adding contrast, CHANGING a size to some 850x600px, for example.
3. you post it as a deviation.
4. you look at your deviation and think "hm, it looks pretty cool! Maybe somebody can buy it. I will allow it as a print."
5. you click at "submit as a print" and in "print submission" option you just scroll down and click at "SUBMIT AS A PRINT".
6. now deviation in your gallery has that cool "buy this print" green button and you are excited about somebody buying it.
7. you are disappointed that nobody bought it.
ZOO Dvur Kralove - PHOTOS + lens troubles?Hi pals!
Kiriban was caught and the winner will be featured soon
I also passed all your comments and compliments (on the last journal's photos) to my parents, they were very pleased and thanked you so thanks!
This weekend I spent in mountain and I visited one of my favourite ZOOs, Dvur Kralove nad Labem. I was a bit disappointed that they moved cheetahs (I did not see them at all), because this ZOO was very good for taking photos of them. They also moved fennec foxes from very photographer friendly enclosure which allowed the foxes to enjoy some sun light into a nocturnal indoor pavilion which is very dark and you can watch the foxes only from above, so I am afraid I lost this place for fennec photos I also did not manage to take good photos of baby tigers and baby leopard although I tried a lot. It seems that my lens refuses to focuse, which scares me I admit I could take some 70 000 photos with it, but... do not die, 55-250 IS! I can not be without photography!
Bitten by a squirrel + funny ZOO Vienna - PHOTOSHi
I used my a bit higher (but still pathetically low) self-confidence to meet another dA member - this time it was Shadow-and-Flame-86, lovely young scientist from Scottland, where she studies marine mammals! It was just perfect, she is very nice person, we had fun (at least me ). I am really glad we met and could chat a lot about her work, ZOOs and animals in general
What was the biggest attraction? Giant pandas? Wolves?
No! Those were squirrels
ZOO Vienna is totally full of wild but tame squirrels. And by full I mean that they are everywhere in a forest part of the ZOO! People feed them with nuts, so they come VERY close to you, they even run to humans, following them and begging I was ready for this and I prepared a sack of wallnuts for me and Shadow-and-Flame-86 to have some fun. It was amazing one squirrel bit me when she took a nut from my fingers - I was rude to hold it too tightly, I think XD other squirrel climbed me chest, other one my
Fantastic white wolves - PHOTOSHi!
Nobody caughed the kiriban?
What a pity
Will, will, where are you?
I do not mean any guy (although Will Riker is kind of cute ), but my own will - I can not get into losing weight again, although I now have the perfect chance to continue! I hate my weak will so much, how comes that I can not kick myself to continue, especially when I see it IS possible? :/ nah, I am so angry at myself. Go, stupid Woxys! There are still 20 kilos of fat which wait to be removed.
Mhhhhhm, I really need to start, as even the current state makes me feel much happier than the state a year ago.
Sorry for talking about this issue a lot, it is not easy, although I have already managed to lose some 20 kilos. And now other 20 should go away! It is just hard, because yes, it is nice I lost so much, but I am still so terribly overweight I have so many motivation clothes, but I obviously need a big kick to continue. GOOO, blonde, go but thank you for your support, you are awesome.
DD for some of you :)Hi!
At first, there is a new kiriban: catch my 955 555 pageviews and send me a printscreen via note as a proof to win a feature
No feature for animal cruelty or porn, thanks for understanding.
At second, no, I did not get any DD (only one - bur many years ago buhhehehhehe )
But I have suggested many deviations for DD and I was disappointed when I got no reply and those deviations have not been accepted I think some of those artists created absolutely incredible work and they definitely deserve more attention.
Today, I will show you some of the deviations I have suggested (or plan to suggest) for DD, but which have not been noticed or accepted by admins, which made me really sad and disappointed. DA has some rules for featuring a deviation as a DD, it says that suggested artist should not have a DD yet, it should not be very famous artist and it should include some info about a subject in the descriptions. Those artists followed the rules, but their art has not
Thieves are annoying + animals - PHOTOS! + KIRIBANHi!
OMG, time for new kiriban again! Catch my 811 111 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof if you want to win a feature (no feature for porn or animal abuse, ok?)!
I can not believe that dA has not removed those stolen photos yet
I sent dA that "I swear to God, to Muhammad, to Buddha, to holy Cow, to the man on the moon, that I REALLY, but REALLY took those photos and I BEG YOU on my knees to remove the stolen ones" note, but nothing happened
I can not even post names of the thieves, because it would be me, who would have problems
I am just grateful that my nice friend TVD-Photography posted a journal (http://tvd-photography.deviantart.com/journal/Life-special-features-and-an-art-thief-294356735) about this problem, asking her watchers to report the thieves
Thanks, TVD-Photography, there is a tiny feature for you
Golden autumn in ZOO Brno - fresh PHOTOSHi!
no, this time I really do not plan to miss autumn photography in ZOO Brno, as I did in 2009 and 2010! ;D
Whole ZOO (except of wolf enclosure, where the leaves are still somehow green ) is golden and I tried to take photos of that
Thank you for every
Foxes, foxes, foxes - PHOTOSHi!

(credit goes to Rebecca Black, of course - I do not want to steal her art )
Yeah, we had a family party yesterday, it was pretty nice
I had the biggest piece of a caramel cake I could imagine and the Murphy's law: the more healthy food you want to eat, the more boxes of chocolates you get
I was the first visitor there, because I wanted to help my cousin and his girlfriend (they were the hosts) to prepare food and so. When there were only three persons, cousins pets were not nervous, so I had fun with both their cats, especially with Max - that little guy is such a silly goose, I love hi
WildSpiritWolf's FAQEDIT: My Commission Info has MOVED, please see here for pricing and terms: http://wildspiritwolf.deviantart.com/journal/36179820/
Welcome To WildSpiritWolf's FAQ Section!
If you have a question that I've missed and you'd like to see me add it to the list, reply to this journal entry and I will update it with the answer. Kay, here we go...
Q. How long have you been drawing?
A. I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil, but I've only been seriously drawing since about 2001. That's when I first started to really explore the internet. It led me to find some of the great artists like Auryanne, Moon Wang, and Snowy who ended up intensely inspiring me and starting my artwork along the path it's on today.
Q. Where do you find your inspiration?
A. The biggest and best place I find my inspiration would be from my own thoughts and feelings. Drawing from my emotions especially with music on in the background can be one of the mo
Commission - Approach and Pricing GuideDo you do commission work? Do you have trouble to get customers in order to buy commissions from you? Or Are you in a dilemma to set your own "competitive" commission price?
If your answer is "yes" to any of the above questions then you are at the right place! Today, I'll tell you (or at least give you a better idea) how to start up with your commission work and setting up the right price.
A little introduction about myself: I am a hobby-driven artist who mainly deals with CSS coding and graphics designing (now) in deviantART. As a profession I am currently employed as an online marketing professional who looks after two leading online gaming brands. I like to help people customize their pages and support them to be a better artist in deviantART.
Having given my short introduction let us first understand that why most of us face a lot of trouble to get commission work or worst, to set up the "right" price for their service.
To my surprise, in a
Feedback Frenzy! (Comment Contest) + PrizesDuring previous weeks of dA Community Relations' projecteducate, we have learned about the importance of giving and receiving critique for our work. Now, let's shake things up a bit!
Feedback Frenzy! (Comment Contest)
A group of very, very devious deviants at FeedbackFrenzy are hosting
a comment/critique contest as part of projecteducate: Feedback Week!
The contest is now closed to entrants and will start on Monday July 2nd!
PE Feedback: Welcome and FEEDBACK FRENZY!
Check out the full contest rules and guidelines!
WHAT: "Feedback Frenzy" is a week-long game that ANYONE (yes, even YOU!) can play. The goals are ① to step outside your comfort zone and practice giving feedback to others, even if not in your own genre, ② to meet new deviants from across dA, an
Starkid at Leakycon: AVP3D: AVPSY ReadingEdit: I'd previously stated I wasn't sure about whether this would be filmed or not, but Devin Lytle (Cho Chang and Miss Cooter) has stated that it WILL be filmed: http://devdevnumnums.tumblr.com/post/27338549093/do-you-know-whether-avpsy-is-going-to-be-recorded-so
Some of you may have heard this already but, if not: http://www.leakycon.com/2012/07/16/only-at-leakycon-a-very-potter-senior-year/
Yes. That is what you think it is. Starkid will be performing a staged reading of the third play in the AVPM series, AVP3D: A Very Potter Senior Year, at their event at Leakycon.
THIS WILL BE THE ONLY TIME THIS WILL EVER BE PERFORMED, AND IT WILL ONLY BE A STAGED READING RATHER THAN PERFORMANCE DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS ON THE STARKIDS, BUT IT WILL STILL BE GLORIOUS TO SEE HOW THEY WRAP UP THEIR STORY.
Are we excited? I know I am.
Astrophotography- Some Of Your Questions AnsweredI have got to a point on this site that I am literally being inundated with questions about how I do some of my photos. I simply do not have time to answer them all in full individually anymore. It is seriously restricting the free time that I have to pursue this hobby and take those pictures that have become so popular (both on here and elsewhere). So for my well being and hopefully to the benefit of those who ask me so many questions, I am doing this write up.
Before I get into some questions though, I want to make a few things clear. I have spent a lot of time and money on trying to learn as much as I can to better myself with this style of photography. I love all forms of astrophotography and I really think I have found my niche. I hope to one day soon start making back a bit of that money I have spent. So I am not going to just reveal everything I have worked so hard to learn. What I am going t
SPAM - Short Pointless Annoying Messages
Hello my watchers/non-watchers/kind visitors, and of course, hello spammers!
I don't know from where to begin because there's a lot to say about this kind of subject called spam.
I've seen that some of people on deviantart.com don't really know what the word spam means, so I will try to be smart with the help of my little friend wikipedia, and use a chance while it's not blocked by SOPA, PIPA and all the other annoying short names. So, here it is (annoying but useful definition):
"Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, wiki spam, online classified ads spam, mobile phone messaging

Today, I post photos, which do not belong to me - they were taken by my parents during their visit in Georgia they allowed me to share them, because I would like to show you that wonderful and wild nature!
By the way, do you know there are even leopards and hyenas living in Georgia? Wow!

ReflectionsVal's pursuit led him to the foul beast's domain. The hollowed-out cavern reeked of blood and rancid meat. The dim light he had seen as he charged through the tunnel after the monster could now be identified: torches. Rows of mysteriously lit torches lined the walls of the huge cave. At its center was a substantially large labyrinth of mirrors.
He spotted the beast entering.
He spun his silver broadsword in his hand and hurried in behind it.
His garb was a simple blue and white crusader's leather with thick armored pads and reinforcing steel studs. Lightweight and flexible, but quite effective defense against blunt blows and – in a pinch – the slashing claws of the unholy spawn of the earth. All monster-hunters wore a similar variety in Val's experience. It would serve him well in these close quarters of the mirrored maze.
Right, left, forward, left, right he turned, always catching a glimpse of the beast's tail as he wove his way through the corridors. Every so often he sp
